Keep in mind there are 2 types of Landmen, Inhouse and Field (Independent) Landmen and they do very different types of jobs. TO be an Inhouse Landman they usually look for an EM or PLM degree with JD as a bonus. For a Field Landman position you just need a degree usually to get hired and not even that if you have a lot of experience doing title work. Inhouse usually starts 65k and Field 50k with both making 6 figures after a few years. Field Landmen do the title work and leasing that keeps the oil & gas attorneys employed.
